Whassup ya'll? I"m brand-spankin new at this, but after a few reads, figure, I'm in the right place. Just learned to ride last november, and was given my friend's old Ninja (with an electrical problem) for christmas. After a new battery and main fuse, a buddy and I got it running, idle all over the place, haven't cleaned the carbs yet, but fittin to. I took it around the block, an accidental over-idle, and it got out from under me at about 20 mph. started twice afterwards, then I got the noise... hhhhhhhhccccccchhhhhhhhh... like the starter driven gear is just spinning on the crankshaft. Took the 'alternator' cover off today, and got a look at it when i try to start it, sure enough, the chain and both gears are moving fine, but turning nothing. i'm thinking starter clutch, but wanted to get more opinions. didn't take the rotor off yet, don't have the tools.... any thoughts... much appreciated. :?
